Ray-Ban W1696 Vintage Oval Sunglasses
Vintage Ray-Ban W1696 Vintage Oval sunglasses are one of the most distinctive and beautiful styles ever produced during the 70 years of B&L Ray-Ban history before the company was sold to Luxottica in 1998. The unique single bar nose bridge really catches the eye and is something you won't see in any other brand of vintage sunglasses. Moreover, the intricate and precise etching of the gold plated Arista frame is rather amazing in its craftsmanship, and the ear stems are equally if not more impressive in their open, intricately etched gold plated design. The unisex Ray-Ban W1696 Vintage Oval frame measures approximately 5.125" temple to temple, and the Bausch & Lomb G-15 XLT lenses measure approximately 1.875" x 1.375" at the widest points with right lens laser etched Ray-Ban and both lenses laser etched BL. The inside of one ear stem is marked B&L Ray-Ban USA, rare new old stock B&L Ray-Ban W1696 Arista Vintage Oval sunglasses in mint, unworn condition.
